Parking Tips: It Doesn't Have to be a Nightmare

Parking seems to always be an issue at the beginning of the semester at Vol State, so here are a few tips to help ease the transition.

The paving project that has been going on the past couple of weeks will be complete by the end of the day today, well in time for the beginning of classes next week so there will be ample parking.

1.Arrive about 10 to 15 minutes before the scheduled class time to allow time to park. This will help with possible wait times given the rush to get to classes the first couple of weeks of the semester.

2.If having to park further away than anticipated, it is not the end of the world. Exercise is generally a positive thing.

3.Bring an umbrella with you as Tenn. weather is always subject to change, and being prepared will help.

4.Try to park as close to the first class of the day, or the last depending on what works best for your specific schedule.

5.Do not park in a spot that is marked for individuals with disabilities or a staff parking spot if not authorized. A staff parking sticker, or an approved state tag for accessible parking must be visible unless a ticket is wanted. Campus police are generally not lenient with this, especially when it comes to taking a disability accessible spot.

6.Be sure to pick up your parking passes in the Wood Campus Center in room 215 or 217. Every student will need one on their vehicle to avoid a ticket.

A map of the campus and parking areas can be found here. The areas in grey with a P are the parking lots.

So much for that one, unless the large hole is going to be staying.
